A Monk's Dinner...

In history this week we have been learning about Augustine, Britain and the Medieval Monasteries. We decided to recreate a Monk's Dinner...

Monks often ate fresh baked wheat bread but were not allowed to have butter on it except at Christmas or other special occasions.

Monks do not eat meat from four legged animals.

Monks are not allowed to talk at meals- we tried, we really did BUT what can I say we are a very communicative family :)

This recipe was taken out of our history activity book.
